“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”

New to Kate’s Quickies? Welcome! If you’ve been here before simply scroll down and get your Quickie:) link.

Welcome to Kate’s Quickies, my mini blog posts where I give you one link or one video to help you on your writing journey.

Why one link or video? Because you already know there are tons of great writing blogs and websites out there with lots of information. It’s overwhelming at times.

Putting it simply, this is the place to go to if you want to get some great info from the pros so you can quickly get on with your life and your writing.

This is also a quilt-free zone. If you comment I’ll reply.  I know from my own experience that I feel a twinge of guilt when I don’t comment or thank a writer for a post. Do NOT feel guilty for NOT commenting.  My no-comment stance for Kate’s Quickies is just my way of giving you a few extra precious moments in your day to do what you love. Write.

All links will be posted on my Kate’s Quickies page at the top of the blog so you can come back anytime.

Today’s link is from publishing veteran Alan Rinzler whose clients include Toni Morrison, Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum and a host of other great fiction and non-fiction authors. The Book Deal: A Publishing Blog for Writers and Book People in my humble opinion, is one of the best blogs out there for traditional and self-pubbed authors because of its insightful commentary on the biz and spot-on craft advice. Fun to visit because I always learn something, it’s also fun because Mr. Rinzler clearly loves writers and books, just like we do:) Recent posts include It’s In The Details, Writers!,  Launching A Successful Blog Tour and When Do You Need An Editor?

Enjoy your day,  take a deep breath, and go write something good.
